What could the reasons that we as common people cannot perform the miracles performed by Lord Jesus Christ ?

is it because of the following reasons ?

1. Lord Jesus Christ had Love, Compassion, Brotherhood, Charity, Peace, Showing Mercy, Kindness and so other noble qualities which we as common people do not possess.
2. Lord Jesus Christ didn't had any of this evil qualities viz
Greed, Lust, Jealousy, Anger, Hatred which lead to commit sins
in our life.
3. We as common people are born with worldly things viz money, material etc, Lord Jesus Christ was not bounded by those worldly things.

Can you please share your views on this ?

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,

Answer
Dear Prashant,

Thank you for your question(s)!

The simple answer to your basic question is that I honestly don't know!  However, there are those who would claim that miracles of the kind of which we read in the New Testament were dispensational.  That simply means that they were for a specific time and purpose - the establishment of the church as the Body of Christ.  Once that had taken place, it is claimed, there was no longer a need for miracles.

Of course, not everyone subscribes to that point of view, and there are many who claim to have witnessed different kinds of miracles in our own day.  What is interesting, and may be relevant, is that miracles of healing, for example, seem to take place where there is no ready access to modern medical assistance.  It could be argued that those of us who have well-equipped hospitals, and doctors' surgeries in our own vicinity don't see the need for specific miracles!  On the other hand, it is also the case that many of the achievements of modern physicians are close to miraculous!  There is a point of view that it is still Father God Who does the healing - the surgeon is merely His hands!

Jesus, Himself, while He walked this earth, was fully human.  However, He was also fully divine - the perfect "God-Man".  It is only to be expected, therefore, that He would be able to accomplish what you and I, in our sinful states, are incapable of accomplishing.

The bottom line, for me, when I pray for those who are ill, or who have any other sort of difficulty/problem, is still to echo the words of that same Lord Jesus: "Not my will, but Yours, be done."

I trust that this will be of help.

Kind regards.
